I like the composition of 1 and 4 the best they tell a story to me.
The processing of all the mages is very good IMO.
When you post multiple images if you want comment on specific shots its always a good idea to number them in your post that way it makes it easier for people to identify which shot they are commenting on.
Yes I own a X100s no I do not forensically listen to my camera to see what noises it makes. If it ever stops working I will get it repaired but until then I will just use it to take photos with not to spread panic and doubt through nervous Internet forum users.
If it works I would not be worried BUT what I would do is hold the camera in the correct orientation before I started querying any noises. The lens is simply not designed to work pointing straight up. You are causing the focus motors to support the entire weight of the glass which I doubt was in their design brief.
Which Fuji X series will bracket 5 photos? Both my X10 and X100 only automatically bracket 3. If you are manually bracketing then the camera should do what it's told if you have no overriding restrictions in place.
I've been watching Aperture as well. I guess the release of iOS7 and the new Mac OS later this year will be the signal. Either there will be a new Aperture then or it will effectively be all over for it I suspect.
@zachhodges Thanks for the interest inn the forum and the explanation. Whilst I am not a VSCO user I appreciate you taking the time to post a response.
I hope that @Christopher bans the spammer and deletes his links.
What crap. Presets involve time and effort on the part of people to create them. If a person wants to go to that time and effort and then wants to charge that is entirely up to them and has nothing what so ever to do with honesty. It's up to customers or users to decide whether to pay for the presets or not.
What is dishonest is a person trolling a forum and pulling up long forgotten posts and linking to a site in an attempt to draw traffic to that site without disclosing what their interest in the site linked to is.
Same process except I took 5 pictures instead of three. I didn't use cable release as I figured it was not really required with the self timer. Besides I did not have one with me.
One thing that intrigued me was that even with the camera parameters zeroed the exposures -2,-1,0,1 ans 2 were not 100%. Two of then -2 and +2 were both slightly short and were effectively -1.9 and +1.9. I have noticed this with the on camera exposure compensation as well. For some reason Fuji try to fudge the figures. I don't know why.
Anybody who says that that they never crop either does not own a camera or they are lying. Simply changing the rotation of a picture by a couple of degrees to get verticals to be vertical is a crop and I bet there is nobody on this forum who has not done that.
One thing that I am doing with my X100s is way, way less cropping than It used to do with DSLRs and zoom lenses. The first thing to consider in regard to DSLRS is that most APS-C ones at least do not have 100% coverage in the viewfinder so what you see is less than what you get. Unless you take a leap of faith or it doesn't matter much it's virtually impossible to frame an image perfectly on a APS-C DSLR in the viewfinder. With the X100s on the LCD or EVF it's a 100% view so you can frame accurately if required. The OVF of course is not 100% but for shots where I use the OVF I and not interested in pixel level framing I guess so I accept what I get. On the photowalk last weekend I took 138 pictures and used 15 none of which I cropped or rotated at all. If I had had a DSLR and taken the same number of images I would have cropped or rotated slightly at least a couple.
In a lot of ways subjects find it creepier if they notice that they are being photographed with a telephoto lens than if a person almost shoves a camera in their face.
There is no ethical right or wrong do what works for you but be conscious of the possible reactions of your subjects.
